The Importance of Being Reese: About


Welcome to my space! Kick off your shoes, relax and stay a while. 

Hello, I'm Reese, recent inductee to the 30's club with one adorable tiny human named Little J, and one incredible husband, Mr. A. We live in the beautiful, sometimes noisy city of Charlotte, North Carolina, which I often talk about on my blog.

My dot com covers a range of topics, including, but not limited to: parenting, food, travel, and local happenings. From time to time, I'll discuss whatever strikes my fancy, just because I can.

 I'm originally from Philly, but spent the majority of my childhood moving from state to state and country to country. While I was off exploring Germany, my husband was growing up in Japan. The stars aligned in 2007 while we were doing our thing in college, and eventually it lead to a relationship, a beautiful tiny little human, a dog, and a house. Oh, and a fish.

 I work as a Digital Marketing Manager for a D.C. based company, and he works with a lot of numbers and terminology that sort of makes my eyes glaze over.

 That's basically our story!                          

If you find that you just can't get enough of us, come find me on social media!
